The hospo pros at Parlour Group are at it again. With Riley St Garage, Surly's and The Village Inn under their belt, they've now moved into The Cannery in Rosebery, where they're about to open Stanton & Co. Headed by executive chef Regan Porteous — who helped set up Riley St Garage four years ago — the restaurant will serve up modern Aussie fare dashed with Japanese influences.
In collaboration with head chef Marcelino Papio (also of Riley St), Porteous has come up with two modern Australian-Japanese menus. At lunch, you'll be sitting down to casual, a la carte dishes; come dinner, the menu will switch to a long, shared feast. On the drinks list there's an extensive selection of cocktails, as well as premium craft beers and boutique wines.
Parlour Group worked with Alexander&Co on the interior, which honours The Cannery's history and, at the same time, draws on ideas from New York's famous Meatpacking District. There's a large dining space, a roomy bar and an open kitchen, so you can watch the chefs in action.
Parlour Group owner Brody Petersen is excited to be opening a new venue in Rosebery. "The area is thriving and has really come alive as a leading food destination in Sydney; it is inspiring and exciting for us to be surrounded by people who share our passion for great food and drink," he says. "We want to create a beautiful venue that is fun, relaxing and vibrant, a place where guests feel like they are eating at a bar rather than drinking in a restaurant."
Stanton & Co. is set to open in October at The Cannery, 85 Dunning Avenue, Rosebery. For more info, keep an eye on their Facebook page.
